Las Clementinas

Las Clementinas is a beautiful, upscale cafe in Casco Viejo.  It is elegantly furnished and offers a wide variety of national and international dishes.  The food is wonderful and the service is top notch and personal.  You can choose to dine inside with all the comforts of climate control or you may dine out on the terraza amid the tropical foliage.  Either way you are in for a delightful time. http://cascoviejo.com/las-clementinas-cafe-and-bar/

Panama’s Jewish Community

Panama is known for having a rich blend of people from many countries, religions and backgrounds. According to the World Jewish Congress there are now about 10,000 Jews living in Panama. The majority of Jews living in Panama are traditional in their practices therefore keep kosher and observe Shabbat. This synagogue, located in Bella Vista, is one of the larger ones in the city.

A Rooftop View

This is the beautiful Bella Vista area of Panama City.  I love the tile roofs of the old houses that still pepper the area.  Many have been torn down to make way for bigger, more modern buildings, but some have managed to survive.  These beautiful, old houses make this area a unique and wonderful neighborhood to live in.  This picture was taken from the rooftop of Finesterre Hotel.
